We also know that Pollack had a knack for making big, commercial films with big stars. Pollack always stated that these were the kinds of films that interested him the most – that when he went to go see movies as a kid, he went to go see big stars like Judy Garland in big productions. So we know we’re never going to get anything too artistic in the way other filmmakers were being innovative with the medium at the time, but he just had a knack for pointing a camera at two stars and getting the best performances out of them. Not only the best performances, but something that usually dug a little bit deeper. His films require patience, yes, but you’re almost always rewarded with great performances, and The Electric Horseman is no exception.
